Every weekend local music geeks unite to provide the region with 11 hours of creatively curated tunes on WOUB 1340AM, an endeavor that is known commonly as Radio Free Athens! Typically the program runs from 9 a.m. EST to 8 p.m. EST every Saturday, and can also be heard through this link.

Here is a list of the DJs slated to play on Saturday, January 12:

9 a.m. to 12 p.m. – Ezra Thobaben
12 p.m. to 2 p.m. – Out of the Afternoon with Art Cromwell
4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. – Civil Disobedience with Chad Reich
6 p.m. to 8 p.m. – DJ Grumpy Grandma

If you miss this weekend’s fine radio programming — shame on you! — but not really, you can hear some fine selections from each DJ’s setlist on WOUB’s Radio Free Athens Spotify playlist, available at this link.

From Chad Reich, DJ Civil D, 4:30 p.m. EDT to 6 p.m. EDT

Chad will be spinning a mix of psychedelic, indie, and electronica.

From DJ Grumpy Grandma, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Lately I’ve been getting good and cranky about not having some of my favorite albums on vinyl. I’m not a super broke grocery store clerk who happens to be a music geek anymore, so I deserve to have these gems in the physical format I love so! Two of those are Funeral Dress from Cincinnati rock ‘n’ rollers Wussy and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco, the frontman of which is, of course, Jeff Tweedy (who I just spent more money on a ticket to see in Columbus in March than I have ever spent on any concert ticket this week). I’ll also be playing music by my new best friends in the Vincent, OH-based band, Cutler Station!
